National Library Week: There's More To the Story

National Library Week 2023

Enter To Win

Posted by: Johnson County Public Library 

Begins April 23, 2023

National Library Week (April 23-29, 2023) is a time to celebrate our nation's libraries, library workers' contributions and promote library use and support. 

Libraries are full of stories in a variety of formats from picture books to large print, audiobooks to e-books, and more. But there's so much more to the story. Libraries of Things lend items like museum passes, games, musical instruments, and tools. Library programming brings communities together for entertainment, education, and connection through book clubs, storytimes, movie nights, crafting classes, and lectures. Library infrastructure advances communities, providing internet and technology access, literacy skills, and support for businesses, job seekers, and entrepreneurs.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
